So, I woke up this a.m. w/ 55 mgdl reading for my bloodsugars. Ate a 1/2 mug of cereal and milk and had a coffee w/ fat-free hazelnut. I took 1.5 units of insulin to make up for the low. At 10:33am, bloodsugar was 284, so I took 4 units of insulin to bring it back down. This is exactly what I'm trying to avoid-- too lows and too highs. Must really get a CGM for this-- I so don't want to hurt my baby!
I have a headache. I'm at work and 7 month pregnant co-worker is going around having us sign her petition to appeal our employer's denial of her 6-month maternity leave and her husband's subsequent 6-month paternity leave, which he would take after she comes back. (He also works here.) I can understand their denial, but it is hedging on the unreasonable side because they are both entitled to leave as they are the parents! Management's reason is that we have a backlog of cases that need to be worked. OMG- we've always had a backlog of cases even when we had more employees here (prior to a voluntary lay-off). Management needs to chill. I hope this doesn't happen to me-- I want to take at least 5 months off (6 months is the max).
